Like many people, I find myself worrying about things such as whether the trip would sufficiently quench my thirst for adventure. I bet it’s the first thing you ask yourself before planning for a trip- where? Based on my experiences, I would recommend traveling to Kenya in the summer. The East African Country is packed with all the adventure one would want to seek on a trip. From beautiful beaches to wildlife and national parks, the country provides travelers with sights and experiences to leave one in awe. I will give you several reasons as to why you should visit Kenya: Developed infrastructure One enabling factor that would make it easy for anyone to settle on Kenya as the preferred holiday destination is the infrastructure. The major cities where all the adventure is are Nairobi (the capital) and Mombasa (the major coastal city). The railway transport connecting the capital and…

New York is the center of the free world. If we get a chance to visit the Big Apple, without a doubt, we do not want to miss the best observatory in the world – the Edge. It is a spectacular outdoor sky observation deck located at 30 Hudson Yard, New York. The Edge is the highest outdoor sky deck in the Western Hemisphere. The sky observation deck is as if hanging halfway to the sky, and it gives the visitors a unique amazing feeling to float in the air with a remarkable 360-degree view on the Big Apple, which we cannot find from anywhere else in the world. The Highlights for the Edge • The sky observation deck is 1,130 ft. tall from the ground level, and it is 80 feet taller than the outdoor observation deck at the Empire State Building. It offers incomparable sweeping views on Manhattan,…

For some reason, I always find myself including the phrase ‘I love traveling’ in my introduction. As a person who travels a lot for both business and leisure, I guess the phrase would rightfully fit a description of me. Initially, I used to plan business and leisure trips separately, but in recent years I have discovered I can combine the two quite well. Business takes you where you have to go; leisure takes you where you want to go. I discovered, however, that most of my business trips often end up with a day wasted. I arrive in most destinations a day or two before business commences or leave a day after its closure. This is why I decided to make one-day leisure trips to pad the free hours of my business trips. I have done it in several cities now and enjoyed it immensely. However, I have also learned…

Looking to visit the northern European country, Denmark? And are you wondering which places are most ideal to check out? I have visited the country a number of times, and I am pleased to provide you with three good candidates for your future sightseeing locations. Let’s dive into them. Kronborg: Not just for fans of Hamlet One of the locations I looked forward to visiting the most, during my first visit in Denmark, was the old castle Kronborg. Haven’t we all heard about it? At least from school, back when we read William Shakespeare’s Hamlet. The castle is located in the northern Sealand town Helsingør, also known as Elsinore in English. Its story and construction dates back all the way to the 1420s, and it’s full of interesting history. I encourage you to check out the castle’s architecture, which is a beauty to behold. There’s also numerous structures and monuments…

If you are into motor racing, why not visit one of the circuit’s locations, combining watching the Grand Prix in person with perhaps a holiday? Monaco Monaco is considered by many as the playground of the very rich. This is partly due to the principality having scrapped income tax in 1869, making it to this day, a tax haven. Also, Monaco is known for the luxurious lifestyle that its occupants enjoy. The other tax rates for companies and individuals are low, too. The revenue from the sale of luxurious goods and services, in the main, funds the principality. The first motor racing Grand Prix was held there on 14 April 1929. In 1950, the Monaco Grand Prix was included in the first World Championships of Drivers. It was twice bestowed the honor of being the European Grand Prix in 1955 and 1963, a designation given to one Grand Prix race…

Traveling the world can offer us Art, Culture, and Music. For instance, there are few pubs that you could visit in Ireland where you would not be greeted with and entertained by music, as you enjoyed the culinary delights of their Irish Stew and sampled a pint of Guinness. Moving further afield, we shall explore 3 destinations that can only bring goosebumps to the arm of the guitarist, or play merry mayhem with the restless fingers of the keyboard player. Graceland In Memphis, Tennessee, is Graceland, the former home of one of the world’s greatest musicians ever – Elvis Presley. It is now a tourist attraction and a “must-see” attraction for any musician who has been inspired by this great artist. The mansion was bought by Elvis in 1957 for $100,000 and he lived there until his death in 1977. The rooms that can be viewed at Graceland include the…

I love exploring the world. I find it extremely thrilling, and it helps me to discover new things about myself. Each year, I select a destination, research it, and plan my trip carefully. Last year, I decided to visit Texas after a friend told me that they liked it there. The state, which is the second-largest one in the United States, is jam-packed with unique places that offer limitless fun and adventure. I had many options to consider, ranging from historical museums, lovely cities, beautiful parks, and classic restaurants to magnificent beaches and mountains. Below are some of the incredible locations I visited, and given another chance, I would explore them again! Big Bend National Park I found this scenic park in West Texas at the U.S. – Mexico border. I’m a hiking enthusiast, and being here felt like heaven. There were over 150 miles of hiking trails for me…

Murcia is a region in Spain that does not get as much attention as the areas around it. Being between Valencia and Andalusia, Murcia has managed to stay hidden from international tourists. I visited this attractive destination recently. The sprawling natural beauty of the area is among the first things that captivated me as soon as I got to Murcia. The endless stretches of beaches make the Costa Calida coastline an ideal destination for relaxation. While the Andalusia region is known for its exquisite wines, Murcia is the less famous cousin whose wine quality is just as good if not better. From the simple holiday with a trip here and there to a fully immersive excursion that explores the lush country and winding wine routes, here are five reasons you should visit the Murcia region of Spain. 1. Lots of Roman History at Cartagena Cartagena is a port-city with priceless…

I look forward to all my flights with childlike glee! Being a travel enthusiast, I understand why they’re crucial. For instance, they allow me to reach my destinations on time, plus I meet some pretty amazing people on planes. This time, however, some of my friends suggested me to travel by private jets. I usually travel by commercial flights. Those who recommended me have had prior experience. And to be honest, all the feedback was positive. I got to know that private rentals can make the journey easier by eliminating the trouble of standing in long queues at security checks. Additionally, there are no transit flights to worry about. I was also informed about different jet card programs that can help me choose from a wide array of aircraft without any extra charges. Truth be told, I was a bit tempted but I just decided that I will consider this…
